Causing Change Through Litigation
Critics of the litigation industry often complain that lawsuits are used to create change instead of leaving all issues to other branches of government. Consider that thought in the context of this recent article on the US using litigation to slow down the use of Switzerland in its race to the bottom laws which make it a "tax haven." Instead of using that euphemism, some would say that the Swiss government aids and abets criminal acts. Swiss banks are not happy at losing that status.
